Paul Pogba’s Man United future in doubt as Barcelona put plans in place to scout midfielder EVERY game




Barcelona plan to watch Paul Pogba in EVERY game for the rest of this season as they begin their full scale assault to sign the Manchester United midfielder next summer.

Barcelona’s hierarchy – general manager Pep Segura and technical directors Eric Abidal and Ramon Planes – are keeping close tabs on the situation ahead of making a £100m-plus move.

The Spanish giants had spies watching him in the Champions League in midweek and plan to do the same for the rest of the campaign.

France World Cup winner Pogba has become Barcelona’s primary target next summer and the Catalan club have now begun the operation to get their man.

Pogba has endured a difficult season at Manchester United with his relationship with Jose Mourinho under the spotlight but Mirror Sport reported earlier this month that a truce has been called until the end of the season.

However, he is already on course for a personal best goals tally for a season.

He had nine and six in his first two seasons back at Old Trafford following an £89m move from Juventus, where he twice managed 10 in a campaign.

But after his double against Bern took his total to four in the first six games of the season – three of them penalties – the 25-year-old wants more.

He said: “I am happy that the goals I scored were decisive in the win. If I can do it, I will try to help the team as much as possible. If I can score a goal or make an assist, that will be great.”

Anthony Joshua reveals what he fears about Andy Ruiz ahead of rematch in Saudi Arabia



Anthony Joshua has claimed “sometimes the ones who are calm and chilled can bark”, when speaking about Andy Ruiz during a press conference in London on Friday.

The Briton also rated Ruiz as “the best heavyweight out there”.

Both boxers went face to face in London, as their three-day press tour ended, ahead of their December 7 rematch in Saudi Arabia.

Asked about again being a challenger to the world heavyweight championships, Joshua said: “It’s a great mindset to have and you can’t lose that. The minute you lose it, you’ve got to retire. You’ve got to be hungry.

“I had a blip. We go again. I’m not shy. No fear.”

Joshua said about his upcoming opponent who took his IBF, WBA and WBO belts earlier this year: “Ruiz Jr is calm but he can fight. He is not a fake character who puts on a persona.

“Sometimes the ones who are calm and chilled can bark back, and can definitely fight.”

Oyo NANS Congratulates New Sports Commissioner, Fakorede 




The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Oyo State chapter, on Monday congratulated the newly-appointed commissioner for Youth and Sports in the state, Mr. Seun Fakorede.

NANS, in a statement signed by its Chairman, Comrade Asubiojo Olujuwon Marshal noted that “youths across the country have over the years campaigned vehemently for the inclusion of younger persons in political offices, but when the world thought it was over with the election of a 25 year old lawmaker, Governor Seyi Makinde shocked the status quo with the appointment of a 27 year old Civil Engineer to head the ministry of Youth and Sports in the state”.

Congratulating Fakorede  on behalf of  the Nigerian students,  Comrade  Asubiojo further described the commissioner’s appointment as a round peg in a round hole “going by the proven leadership strength, sound knowledge of sports and youthful vigour”. He averred that Fakorede’s appointment would bring unprecedented development to the constituency.

“We wish to remind the Honorable Commissioner that he no longer represents himself and family alone, but the entire youths in the state and the country. As the world awaits the result of this bold appointment by Governor Seyi Makinde, it is our believe that Hon. Seun Fakorede will show the world that youths are the solution to the leadership problems of the world through focused leadership and laudable achievements”, the statement reads.

FIFA Slap Lifetime Ban On Samson Siasia For Taking Bribes




World Football’s Governing Body, FIFA on Friday issued a lifetime ban on Samson Siasia, former Nigeria Football Federation official after the body’s ethics panel found him guilty of taking bribes in connection with match fixing.

In a statement, the adjudicatory chamber of FIFA’s independent ethics committee said the probe targeting Siasia stemmed from a wider investigation involving Wilson Raj Perumal, who has confessed to international match-fixing.

The probe that began in February found Siasia “guilty of having accepted that he would receive bribes in relation to the manipulation of matches in violation of the FIFA Code of Ethics,” the statement said.

In addition to being banned from all football related activity for life, Siasia was also handed a fine of 50,000 Swiss francs ($50,000, 46,000 euros).

Siasia, a former striker, also briefly coached Nigeria’s men’s national football team.

FIFA did not detail the nature of ties to Perumal, a Singaporean national who was arrested and jailed in Finland in 2011 for fixing top-tier football games there.

Perumal later collaborated with match fixing investigators.
